Tyrese Gibson Is In Hot Water Over Child Abuse Claims
Tyrese Gibson, best known for his role in the Fast and Furious franchise is currently being investigated by the LA County Dept. of Children and Family Services following claims that he has abused his 10-year-old daughter Shayla in the past.
According to TMZ, Gibson’s ex-wife Norma has revealed a court battle that the 38-year-old allegedly hit his daughter so hard she was unable to sit down.
The former wife of the rapper is also claiming that Tyrese “beat” his daughter between 12 and 16 times. Tyrese claimed he struck her on the bottom only once.
Norma is seeking full physical and legal custody over the child, as Tyrese is currently based in Dubai, and has requested that he takes domestic violence courses following the alleged incidents.
Tyrese's lawyer, Terry Levich Ross, also made an official statement to TMZ. "She's a lying piece of s***. Tyrese is devastated. He's a good guy and I will prove that."
Allegedly, Tyrese is claiming that Norma is just bitter since he has moved on and remarried.
Whatever the outcome for the parents, we hope a good outcome for their daughter.
Tyrese posted this touching post on Facebook two weeks ago in honour of his daughter.
